So… 5 years after purchasing my first and only DSLR, I’ve finally purchased a Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera. At first I thought I was limited due to Covid-19 and all that’s been shutdown, but surprisingly; I’ve got a different perspective.

Some might say I’m lucky, even I would. I’m definitely thankful. It’s just I feel so thankful, that sometimes I feel like my camera is more than equipment, but somewhat of a trophy. Not every photographer gets to own a Full-Frame camera. I made that decision because of my passion for the art form and as well my determination to grow…

So… long before I owned a DSLR, I had always loved clothing and fashion. I spent a good… year or two actually trying to design and brand myself. I tried College. Why? Why not. I thought I should try to become a graphic designer because I liked branding. Bought my DSLR, art kit, etc. Here’s the problem… I had to either have a wicked portfolio or complete this thing called “Design Foundations”. So, I signed up for the course. I lasted one semester. Was I too young? Nope, 22. Did I lack the experience and struggle with drawing? Of course…
